The project is being written by comedian and gamer Mishna Wolff (Limp) and Josh Ruben, who wrote, directed, and starred in the upcoming Scare Me, will direct.
Ubisoft’s Werewolves Within takes place in a fantasy medieval town called Gallowston where a werewolf has begun attacking the local gentry. Players from around the world can convene around the same virtual campfire in an effort to determine who among them is the werewolf to save themselves and their village.
The game is a fun and fast-paced exercise in deception with three star rating currently on Steam, and it will be interesting to see how the creative team brings the format to life on the big screen.
Wolff secured a script deal for the film adaptation after pitching her idea at Ubisoft’s first Women’s Film and Television Fellowship.
While there is no scheduled date for the release at this time, casting news generally means that projects are gearing up to begin production and we should know more soon.
With Richardson’s considerable comedy skills, this definitely has the potential to be a big hit.

‘Fear’ Trailer Introduces an Entity That Makes Your Worst Fears Come True
Deon Taylor is severely underrated as a director and producer. His work has been a penchant of horror, thriller and social commentary that is absolutely biting. These have included Fatale, Black and Blue, The Intruder, Traffik, and more. His latest film, Fear takes a group of friends on a vacation who come across an entity that is capable of making your worse fears come true.
Taylor’s work is a tapestry of a throwback to grindhouse thrillers combined with a strong current of the strongest of black filmmaking voices in the 1970s. I’m always on the lookout for what Taylor is up to next.
The synopsis for Fear goes like this:
In this psychological horror film, a group of friends gather for a much-needed weekend getaway at a remote and historic hotel. Celebration turns into terror as one by one, each guest faces their own worst fear.
The film stars Joseph Sikora Andrew Bachelor, Annie Ilonzeh, Ruby Modine, Iddo Goldberg, Terrence Jenkins, Jessica Allain and TIP “T.I.” HARRIS.
Fear arrives in theaters beginning January 27.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest offering takes us through another landscape of pure violence and the supernatural. Copenhagen Cowboy is incredibly stylized and full of artful shots.
